Yellowstone has room for more jobs at night and over the weekends

April 12, 2013

While Yellowstone has regularly been averaging 90% utilization on weekdays, it has room to handle more jobs. In particular, overnight and on weekends, Yellowstone has been emptying its queues and showing lower utilization in the early morning hours and on Sundays and early Mondays.

Users are encouraged to factor this usage pattern and submit jobs late in the day or late on Friday. Such jobs are likely to be run overnight or over the weekend. Note that these times might be good opportunities to take advantage of the economy queue.
